Biology and computer science
Researchers from the Institut Pasteur and Inria, in collaboration with the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), Paris Diderot University and the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria, have published two articles in Nature Communications on the control by computer of cell processes; scientific advances made possible by the alliance between two disciplines that are today complementary - biology and the computer science.
The work "Computer Arithmetic and Formal Proofs - Verifying Floating-point Algorithms with the Coq System", co-written by Sylvie Boldo and Guillaume Melquiond (Toccata team - Inria) has just been published by Editions Iste .
Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
For Nozha Boujemaa, these technologies are at the crossroads between the digital sciences and the human and social sciences
This year, the European Commissionand the BDVA (Big Data Value Association) are joining forces in order to organise the "European Big Data Value Forum" (EBDVF) which will take place at the Palais des Congrès in Versailles from 21 to 23 November 2017. Inria is a partner and co-organiser of this European event dedicated to Big Data. This first edition will bring together industry professionals, researchers and political decision-makers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the European data economy and innovation through data in Europe.
Meeting with Nozha Boujemaa, research director and director of the Institut DATAIA (Data Sciences, Intelligence and Society Institute), to find out more about this event and the challenges and issues of Big Data and artificial intelligence technologies in France and in Europe.

ERC Starting Grant
Winner of a 2015 ERC Starting Grant, for his projectSignal processing and Learning Applied to Brain data(SLAB), Alexandre Gramfort has been a member of the Parietal project team - a joint team with CEA-Saclay - since 1st April 2017. His project aims to provide a more accurate interpretation of the electrophysical signals of healthy or sick brains, in order to better understand how they function. A meeting with this young researcher, lecturer and graduate of the French engineering school Télécom ParisTech.

Cédric Villani has been tasked by the Prime Minister with examining France's strategy on artificial intelligence (AI) within Europe. He will submit his recommendations to the government in 2018. To bring this project to a successful conclusion, he is working with by Marc Schoenauer, research director and head of the TAU team at the Inria Saclay – Île-de-France research centre and one of the few French mathematicians recognised in this field. He is also president of AFIA, the French artificial intelligence association.
François Fages, head of the Lifeware team, has been rewarded for his work during the 15th international conference "Computational Methods in Systems Biology" which took place in Darmstadt, Germany, in September 2017.
David Marcum has been rewarded for all of his work in the field of mesh generation by theIMR Fellow Award 2017.
The University of Aarhus has decided to reward Wendy Mackay, head of the Ex-Situ team, for her entire career and in particular for her work on interactive video, participatory design and mixed reality.
On Friday 15 September, she was awarded the "Doctorem Scientiarum Hororis Causa".
The work Effective algorithms in formal computing ('Algorithmes efficaces en calcul formel'), co-written by Frédéric Chyzak and Alin Bostan (SpecFun team - Inria), Bruno Salvy (Aric team - Inria), Marc Giusti and Grégoire Lecerf (Computer Science Laboratory of the École polytechnique) has just been published.
Initially aimed at students specialising in formal computing, on a wider scale this work will be able to serve as a reference or initiation for other researchers, in this discipline or others.
